You chose to live in a city for a reason, right? And you want that city to be the best place to live that it can possibly be, right?
Right. We at Technically Media do, too, which is why we’re hosting the second annual Rise Conference on Dec. 3 and 4. The conference will feature speeches from leaders in civic innovation, including city officials and community leaders, that we hope will inspire change for the better.
Day 1’s topic is “The Future of City.” Day 2’s is “How Do We Get There?” The list of esteemed Philadelphia-based speakers includes Andrew Buss, Director of Innovation Management, Office of Innovation & Technology, City of Philadelphia; Danielle Cohn, Senior Director, Entrepreneurial Engagement, Comcast; John Hall, VP, Coatesville Community Education Foundation; Sylvester Mobley, Executive Director, Coded by Kids; Lansie Sylvia, Project Director, Next Stop: Democracy!; and Stephen Tang, President & CEO, University City Science Center.
We’re drawing from other cities, too: Expect to hear from outgoing Los Angeles Chief Data Officer Abhi Nemani and DC Civic Technology Officer Matt Bailey, among others.
Also, this just in from our events team: Jim Kenney will be making one of the first keynote addresses of his time as mayor-elect.
